“Dr. Mellano is a great surgeon. He understood what I was going through and even though I had trouble with the splint his team gave me, he made it happen and provided me what I had asked which was another splint. … He is a true professional and an excellent businessman. Do not risk your life with anyone else in sports medicine and make your appointment with his office before it is too late.”
“Dr. Mellano did my hip replacement and I highly recommend him. He's not only an excellent dr, he's kind, thoughtful, and listens to you. I have chronic pain coming from different injuries and he took the time to exam me. There's a lot of drs that can only read x-rays, Dr Mellano is not one of them. He takes the time to research the problem. … Lillian his PA is amazing too!

“My 2 1/2 year old daughter was in a horrible accident at a birthday party. What was supposed to be a wet and wild fun day turned into a devastating freak accident and her Femur was fractured. Luckily she did not need surgery, instead she was put in spica casting for what was supposed to be 6wks. … With the tender care and patience of Dr.Mellano, our daughter was only in the cast for 4wks!!!!! Dr. Mellano is the most caring doctor I have ever met. He made me feel like family. He treated my daughter as one of his own. I will never be able to thank him enough.”

“Dr. Mellano performed a distal bicep repair surgery on me back in February. He was by far the best doctor I have ever seen and I could not ask for a better experience. … It's been a couple months and I am nearly fully recovered. He did a great job and exceeded my expectations. He followed up with me a couple days after the surgery to make sure I was recovering. Overall he is a super nice guy, great doctor and I would personally recommend him if you need to see an orthopedist.”

“After breaking my arm, I met Dr. Mellano the day of, where he came in from his office to the hospital on a Sunday to gather information and observe my injury. He was kind and offered insight, in addition to being easy to speak with. A week later I went in for surgery and while I have no real past experience of an injury such as my recent fracture, I knew the procedure went well by the healing process in the following weeks. … A sincere thank you to Dr. Mellano and team for my speedy recovery!

“I broke my humerus and fractured my elbow while arm wrestling. ... It has been 3-4 months since my surgery and I am fully functioning and sometimes forget my arm was broken not too long ago. Whereas prior to this, before the surgery, I didn't think my arm would function normally ever again.”
Samuel B. Yelp
I have been a patient of Dr. Chris Mellano for about two years. He is kind, caring and a great orthopedist in whom I have complete confidence. I appreciate how he offers me treatment options but lets me decide, without pressure, which one to choose. I couldn't be happier and more grateful to have him as my doctor.
